Claiming compensation for faulty stationary

Everyone requires some form of work equipment while in employment, whether it consists of basic stationary such as scissors or staplers to specialist tools or large industrial machinery. No matter what role you work in, at some point you will rely on stationary in order to do your job, but if you are provided faulty stationary then you could be at harm. Employers have a duty to protect the health and safety of their employees and that goes as far as providing safe stationary that can be used for general office purposes.

If you have suffered a personal injury at work as a result of faulty stationary, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are many instances where you could become injured in the workplace as a result of faulty stationary, leaving you in a lot of pain and trauma as a result. So if you believe that you haven’t been provided adequate equipment to work with and you are injured, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.

Where might you look to claim?

Providing stationary that is in full working order not only makes you more efficient, but it also helps ensure that you are safe in the workplace, so if you feel you haven’t been provided this then you could look to make a claim. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims against a failure to provide safe stationary

·         Claims if you cut or maim yourself using faulty stationary

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of faulty equipment

·         Claims against a manager who failed to provide safe stationary

Who might be responsible for your claim?

If you work in an office environment which uses faulty stationary, then there is a chance that you could become injured. If your health has been put at risk due to the poor standard of equipment then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. This would most likely be made against a manager for failing to uphold levels of health and safety by providing inadequate stationary, as their negligence would have resulted in your medical issues. It is important to remember that you must be able to prove their role in your injury in court, otherwise you will fail in your attempt to claim compensation.
